There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.

You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the traffic must be redirected to.
